A decent route worthy of one star. At least there is no traffic on it.

On the East Face of Outhouse rock, find a rounded pillar/buttress on the right hand end. Straight Flush climbs the shallow corner on it's left side, about 2M left of Wise Crack. It is a little dirtier than some other area routes but mostly solid rock.


A standard rack of nuts and cams to 3 or 3.5"

A worthy tick. Two stars out of five.

Funny, it turns out that the FA was done in 1956, but they avoided the bottom part of the crack (crux) and traversed in from the left (its about 5.6/7 this way).

An enjoyable mix of techniques. It might have been my early-season conditioning, but both my partner and I felt that the steep moves exiting and after the pod/cave were fairly stout for 5.8, even by Josh standards (well protected, though).
